"Weight" is the two-way gravitational attraction between two objects. A single object

in space all by itself has no weight. In order to measure its weight, you need to have

another object around to set up a mutual gravitational attraction, and then the weight

will depend on the mass of the other object, and also on the distance between the

centers of both of them.

If I am the other object and I am located one earth-radius from the center of the earth,

then the earth weighs 185 pounds, or about 822 newtons.
